This is the story of how Thalia’s life became so blurred because she followed the rules of others, was not true to her inner voice, and did not speak up. Through the years of bullying and abuse, she gave up too much of herself, her soul, her power. Just to appease the family, she changed and silenced her beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and prayers.
Through acceptance and forgiveness, she is “unpixelating,” finding focus, and healing. She is grateful for the events and people who have helped her find a voice and tell her story. It is her desire to help other women do the same.
“Remember, this is your story, and you have done an impressive and admirable job creating it! It touches every emotion that we who have been abused have; the anger is so intense, the fear and loneliness are so overwhelming, the sadness is unspeakable. Thank you for creating such a powerful story, dear friend. It is, and will be, a gift to all of us who share it!” (Bonnie Howell).
